In Competition

Based upon a series of best-selling children’s books, ‘Casparade’ is a comedic animated series following the life of seven-year-old Casper and his unconventional parents. Here, Casper is obsessed by the TV adventures of the Fly Avenger, his favourite superhero. When Dad restricts his access to television, Casper has the brilliant idea of dressing up as his grandfather in order to confuse Dad. That works out fine – until Dad decides to strike back. As their role games spiral out of control, Casper will eventually learn that it’s best just being yourself.
